We are in the last workshop of this course and of your degree program as well. You have been persistent and are about to finish. Even God’s Word has something to say about completing what we start: “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016, James 1:12(new tab)).
The writer of the book of James from the Bible is talking about faith and our reward of an eternity with Him, God, in Heaven. It also says something about completing any task or project, even life, that we take on with serious intent.
